ACCC seeks industry feedback on NBN Co information

The consultation aims to increase transparency on the network rollout and inform telco service providers on important developments

The ACCC is seeking feedback from telecommunication companies on the information that NBN Co should disclose about the network rollout.

ACCC commissioner, Cristina Cifuentes, said the consultation is designed to increase transparency around the network rollout and ensure all telco service providers are equally informed of important developments.

Under the new multi-technology mix model for the NBN, Telstra will work closely with NBN Co in the planning, design and construction of the network. As a result, Telstra will have access to sensitive information about the rollout, including on progress towards milestones and the technology mix that will be used in particular areas.

Cifuentes said the NBN Co is required to make information available to all so that service providers are on an equal footing.

“This should help prevent Telstra getting any special advantage as a result of its involvement with the rollout,” she said.

The ACCC has released a discussion paper asking interested parties about what information NBN Co should disclose, how it should be disclosed and at what level of detail. Also under consideration is how frequently information should be released and how it should be kept up to date.

Submissions are due by April 24.
